Rod Davis appeared at the Temple Bar Beatlefest in Dublin on Friday 13 July. On stage with him accompanying him on guitar was Phil McQuillan who played John Lennon in the film “Young Lennon”. A great time was had by all - and a great deal of Guinness was had by all - especially at the Wrap Party on the Sunday evening in the Merchant’s Arch. The whole of the Temple Bar quarter of Dublin was stuffed with people all throbbing to the music. Thanks to Stevie Carroll for a fantastic weekend.
